It took a trip to CES in Las Vegas this year to learn more about an Atlanta-based company that makes and distributes gaming accessories that not only look good, but they also give a real competitive advantage. Putting science to use by using ergonomics and physics, KontrolFreek products add to the excitement of gaming by improving performance, reducing fatigue and giving an overall comfortable gaming experience. With the advent of eSports and gaming consoles and platforms becoming more affordable, gaming is set to come off a big 2015, with even a bigger 2016 and KontrolFreek is ready.
“KontrolFreek has been on a major growth trajectory for several years, and we’re pleased that 2015 was no exception. This was our best year to date,” states Ashish Mistry, President and CEO of KontrolFreek. “Moving into 2016, that momentum won’t slow down. We currently have several open staff positions and are expanding our offices. We have already locked in key retail and licensing deals for this year, and we can’t wait to see what the rest of 2016 will bring.”
Highlights for KontrolFreek include signing a licensing deal with Activision Publishing in 2015. New Call of Duty licensed products always cause a stir and an innovative new thumbstick design sold completely out in the first 25 hours after launch.
KontrolFreek makes thumbsticks, grips, armour for gamers that demand the best. All KontrolFreek products check in at affordable prices and their “bundles” offer the change to get 20-30% off what the products would cost if bought separately. Call of Duty fans will love the custom Call of Duty bundles that feature beautiful color schemes and a proven track record of success. Best known for our FPS Freek® thumbstick line, KontrolFreek accessories also extend the life of you controller sticks. Accuracy, performance and efficiency come into play with KontrolFreek. KontrolFreek proved its products would extend your controller’s life back in 2009. Since then, their products have been proven to give gamers a competitive advantage. It’s also well known that gamers of all levels can benefit from using just one KontrolFreek product. KontrolFreek makes it easy, but it isn’t cheating.
“While seemingly simple, KontrolFreek Grips are the result of years of research and development,” added Mistry. “The combination of science and materials position Grips as a natural extension to our product line and a perfect fit with KontrolFreek’s performance-driven philosophy and focus on gaming gear that enhances the gaming experience for all types of video game players.”
Why would you go into a gun battle with a knife? Give your thumbs a break and a rest. 2015 saw the company introduce eight new thumbstick designs, more grips and claim its position in the growing gaming controller accessories space.
